For Healthcare Professionals

Working in healthcare can be demanding and stressful. You might have to work irregular hours, take extra shifts, and deal with the emotional weight of losing patients. While you’re great at solving problems and providing care, the long-term effects of stress and trauma can affect anyone.

Sometimes, the difficult cases you handle leave lasting impacts, and others might not bother you as much. You could even find yourself feeling angry because of the senseless trauma you witness frequently, which can make it hard to show empathy to patients. These mixed emotions are signs of moral injury.

You might wonder why you react differently to various patient outcomes or if your reactions are normal. Trauma can cause a range of responses, including trouble sleeping, nightmares, irritability, a desire for solitude, emotional ups and downs, and even physical discomfort.

There are effective ways to cope with these experiences and emotions. You already know the importance of physical health, but taking care of your mental well-being is just as crucial. Here, you’ll find information and resources tailored for healthcare professionals and advice on building resilience and well-being, as well as ways for families to get involved.

Caring for others means caring for yourself.

When to Seek Help
Recognizing when to seek support can be straightforward, but with your busy schedule, it’s easy to overlook the effects of stress and trauma. It’s essential to practice self-care and regularly check in on your feelings, especially after tough shifts.

You should seek help if you experience any of these warning signs:

  • Feeling easily irritable or angry.
  • Feeling anxious, depressed, lonely, or persistently sad.
  • Repeatedly reliving traumatic events.
  • Isolating yourself and losing trust in others.
  • Experiencing compassion fatigue, burnout, or moral injury.
  • Struggling with sleep or oversleeping.
  • Using substances like alcohol or drugs more than usual.

You might also have unexpected physical issues like digestive problems, aches and pains, or memory problems. While these feelings and experiences are normal, they can significantly affect your mental and physical well-being. Experiencing these signs doesn’t mean you’ll have a long-term mental health condition, but addressing them is crucial for your lifelong health and wellness.
